Wizard of OZ Blog Hop

Hello Everyone,

Today I'll be joining Two Crazy Crafters in their Wizard of Oz ATC blog hop.

In preparation for this day I surfed the web and searched for free coloring pages I could use to make my favorite characters from. Them I got busy making all these cute ATC's

Being a Midwesterner born and breed I've always known the dangers of Tornadoes. So as a child, when I first saw the movie - it was really kind of scary when the tornado lifted up Dorothy's house and carried it away with Dorothy in it.

So my first ATC is of the tornado:

This picture was a free coloring page from: Cartoon

The next pictures I found on a great website and I thought when I printed the pictures out that the page would have the web address on it - so I could link back to it. - However, I was wrong: and after many hours of searching I have never found the website again. If anyone know what site these came from please let me know so I can give them credit for their coloring pages and link back to them.

The Wicked Witch of the West - looking pretty good in this ATC

Dorothy & Toto on the Yellow Brick road and a few quilled Poppies

Glinda the Good Witch from the South

And of course Dorothy's companions along the road to Oz.

Simple Word of Wisdom:

Where ever you go, go with all your heart. . . Confucius

Courage is simply the willingness to be afraid and act anyway. . . Robert Anthony

Hope you have a great Friday everyone.

Penny those are to adorable for words...I can see some ideas for the good, bad and ugly happening here...I am enjoying working on art from time to is slow going but at time a welcome distraction. I have had some glue product failure on your beautiful ATC box I am making for you and it is frustrating me as to what to use next to keep the pearl garland in place!
Your box is filling up with treasures and I may have to include little sealed packages that say do not open until September...October.
Sending love and hugs...Karla

Every now and then,
when the world sits just right,
a gentle breath of heaven
fills my soul with delight...

Love your ATCs, Penny, especially the "twister" one - tornadoes really scare me! (I'm more used to hurricanes, which can be awful but at least we have some warning) Wasn't this a fun blog hop?!
Have a good weekend!
